CT-guided biopsy in suspected spondylodiscitis: microbiological yield, impact on antimicrobial treatment, and relationship with outcome

PurposeTo investigate the clinical impact of CT-guided biopsy, as performed in routine clinical practice, in patients with suspected spondylodiscitis on MRI in terms of culture yield, impact on antimicrobial treatment, and outcome.MethodsThis study included 64 patients with MRI findings compatible with spondylodiscitis who underwent CT-guided biopsy.ResultsInitial CT-guided...

Spondylodiscitis following endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair: imaging perspectives from a single centre’s experience

ObjectiveVery few reports have previously described spondylodiscitis as a potential complication of endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR). We present to our knowledge the first case series of spondylodiscitis following EVAR based on our institution’s experience over an 11-year period. Particular attention is paid to the key imaging features and challenges encountered when...

Interposition of the transverse ligament of the knee into a fracture of the tibial plateau: a case report

Interposition of the transverse ligament of the knee between fragments of an intercondylar eminence fracture was diagnosed using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in a 11-year-old boy after a sports injury. The interposition was confirmed and corrected during arthroscopy. We report what we believe to be the first published case of isolated interposition of the transverse ligament...

Pseudotumor in metal-on-metal hip arthroplasty: a comparison study of three grading systems with MRI

ObjectivePseudotumors, a well-known complication of metal-on-metal total hip arthroplasty (MoM THA), are well identified on metal artifact-reducing sequences magnetic resonance imaging (MARS-MRI). Several MRI grading systems are described in the orthopedic literature, but their validity is unknown in large clinical studies. Our study was undertaken to describe the classification...

Prosthetic liner wear in total hip replacement: a longitudinal 13-year study with computed tomography

This case report follows a woman who had a total hip replacement in 1992 when she was 45 years old. Six serial computed tomography (CT) examinations over a period of 13 years provided information that allowed her revision surgery to be limited to liner replacement as opposed to replacement of the entire prosthesis. Additionally, they provided data that ruled out the presence of...
